** Hypnotherapy **
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is an altered state of awareness which everyone experiences naturally like just before going to sleep or as you come out of sleep in the morning. You are aware of what is going on around you and what the therapist is saying. It is acheived through using complete mental and physical relaxation and visualisation techniques.
How might it help me?
Hypnotherapy is used to help people with a variety of problems such as eating disorders, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, stress related problems like insomnia and, phobias of all kinds ( such as a fear of spiders or flying) It is also helpful in conquering addictions such as smoking and alcoholism. Conditions made worse by tension, such as irritable bowel syndrome , psoriasis and eczema respond well to Hypnotherapy aswell as excessive sweating, tinnitus and clicky jaw.
How does a typical session go?
In Hypnotherapy a person usually experiences a deep sense of relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist. These suggestions help people make positive changes for themselves. It is not about controlling people's minds. You are always in control and you cannot be made to do anything against your will. It is generally accepted that all hypnosis is ultimately self-hypnosis. Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the conscious control of the mind is inhibited, and the sub-conscious mind awoken.
What does it cost?
Prices are from £55.00
The ability of people to be hypnotised varies considerably and Hypnotherapy generally needs several sessions in order to achiece meaningful results. You can learn the technique of self-hypnosis which can be practiced at home, to reinforce the formal sessions with the therapist.
